This new and extended version of the North Haven 24 maintains the 8’6′ beam for trailering while lengthening it’s footprint with a flotational swimstep that lengthens the waterline and supports a much higher HP outboard for those seeking to get to and from their fishing grounds quickly. Added transom seating and more headroom in the berth area improve cruising and for those seeking economy over speed a smaller outboard will allow better fuel economy and because of the increased waterline. Study plans and construction plans are available now.
